System incorporates automatic attachment recognition, a load management data system and a load stability indicator
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation organization and a main worldwide manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, is expanding its SmartLoad Technology. Right now accessible for its 1644 and 1732 high capacity telehandlers, SmartLoad Technology will be accessible as an alternative on all JLG telehandlers over the next 12 months. SmartLoad is a propelled heap of three coordinated technologies that cooperate to increase operator confidence and optimize productivity. This award-winning, industry-first system includes automatic attachment recognition, a load management information system and a load stability indicator.
The automatic attachment recognition permits a telehandler to identify a connection and show the appropriate load chart to the operator. The load management information system (LMIS) graphically portrays the area of the load within the load chart and helps the operator in navigating the boundaries of the chart. the load stability indicator (LSI) works related to the LMIS to limit operation when a load becomes non-compliant.
“Having access to real-time load data gives operators added confidence on the jobsite,” said John Boehme, JLG senior product manager, telehandlers. “SmartLoad Technology can also save fleet owners from costly repairs that can occur when the machine is overloaded.”
The expansion of SmartLoad over the JLG Telehandler line, notwithstanding the assortment of connections and highlights accessible for this award-winning equipment is the direct result of customer feedback.
